Hey guys! So this week one of the books that I read was More Than This by Patrick Ness. This novel is about a boy who drowns. And then he wakes up. When he awakens he is in his old house, and when he goes outside. Everything is empty. I mean, the houses are still there, along with the stores and everything else, but it looks as if no one has been there for several years. And further exploration shows that it looks as if parts of the land has been bombed or burned.
This book was an amazing read! It had so much mystery and during the whole book I was always wondering "What's going to happen next?". The book felt like it had so many layers too it. When I finished reading it I felt (and still feel like) I could totally write an essay about it.
One of my favorite parts about this books was his 'flashback' type of parts. They kind of reminded me of a contemporary gay-boy-coming-out type of book which I love (I hope that that doesn't for some reason offend anyone). After reading the novel, I was put it a contemporary novel mood, which I hope to fulfil soon.
Another thing that I enjoyed about this book was Patrick Ness's descriptions of death (I hope that doesn't make me sound weird) because they were so beautifully described (ok this sounds really weird) and how they really bring tears into your eyes.
And finally, I loved how this book was ended because you do not expect the ending at all.
I 100% recommend this book because it feels like the entire book is the climax and the books feels so immersive and you CAN NOT put it down!
If you guys would like me to read any books for you guys please comment below! Thanks!
